Myrrh Haslam Fine Art
The Silos at Sawyer Yards
Myrrh is a professional fine artist in oils. When she isn’t painting outside, she works out of her studio at the Sawyer Yards in downtown Houston, where she shows and sells her paintings.
Her artistic flare began in early childhood where she spent many years studying Dance and Theatre arts. Spending her early years traveling the country, her favorite vacations were visiting lakes and National Parks. Her family moved to Clear Lake City in her teens, and she attended the University of Texas as a Dance major.
Myrrh’s love of creativity translated naturally to oil painting. For 15 years, she studied the materials and techniques of the Old Masters. When introduced to the spontaneity and fun of impressionist techniques, she was hooked! Plein air painting has become her favorite pursuit the last few years. “I found nature to be an inspiring teacher--I load up my gear and head out to commune with the beauty of the countryside. One of my goals as an artist is to capture the spirit of the natural landscape.” Myrrh enjoys painting a variety of subjects, seeking in each their unique character and beauty.
